Since the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) in 2006, a large and thriving research products market has emerged, largely because the cells are non-controversial and can be generated directly from adult cells. It is clear that iPSCs represent a lucrative market segment, because methods for commercializing this cell type are expanding every year and clinical studies investigating iPSCs are swelling in number.

Today in 2020, the number of new achievements cropping up each year is nothing short of astonishing. Modern medicine’s ability to heal previously unhealable parts of the body – from brains to hearts to compound fractures and nerve disorders – continues to amaze. Now, stem cell treatments are the newest addition to the healing repertoire. [Read more…]
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 15, 2020 — I Peace, Inc. (CEO: Koji Tanabe), a Palo Alto-based biotech start-up focusing on Nobel Prize-wining technology “induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)” began manufacturing clinical-grade iPSCs. We are now officially taking orders for custom manufacturing of clinical-grade iPSCs from institutions around the world.
On March 11, 2020, the company received a license to manufacture clinical-grade cells from Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare for its cell manufacturing facility located in Kyoto, Japan. [Read more…]
Several therapeutic applications are now being studied in preclinical tests using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived cells for their potential to produce functional cells capable of replacing damaged or dysfunctional tissues in patients. The first clinical trial using iPSCs started in 2008, and now in 2020, the number has risen to 53.
The early clinical trials did not involve the transplant of iPSCs into humans, but rather, the creation and evaluation of iPSC lines for clinical purposes. Within these trials, iPSC lines were created from specific patient populations to determine if these cell lines could be a good model for a disease of interest. [Read more…]
Are you planning on having stem cell therapy?
The more you know about the procedure, the more likely you are to safely go through it.
If you’re wondering how long does it takes for stem cell therapy to work – you’re in the right place.
In this article, we will go over what stem cell therapy is, how the procedure works when it works, and post-procedure processes.
